Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

I think they look pretty as they dry out and they self-seed which is always a bonus in my book 😉

Thanks @lilybee @kez001uk I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised with these considering I got them from Poundland!! And all 3 bulbs have bloomed!! 💜

These were Poundland specials!! Very impressed with them to be fair. @ublaszko

I was impressed with my Poundland miniature tulips and I bought more bulbs for the summer. Not impressed with their shrubs though so I wouldn't buy those again. Perennials seems to be hit and miss. Some flowered in the first year and the others I've yet to see flower after 3 years 😥

@lostgardener 😂😂 I keep forgetting they’re there! I don’t see them anymore. Past few years I’ve had issues with next door’s cat (RIP) digging up my pots when is planted new things and there was fresh compost so had to start putting spiky things in to stop her!! I need to start removing them now she’s passed on and the plants are developed!!

Yep , alliums are easily recognised by pink tips to the leaves when they first come up. 👍

Can’t believe everything is coming up all at the same time! I know they’re not flowering yet but wasn’t expecting everything to be in leaf in February! @ublaszko

They're not really supposed to be growing or flowering all at the same time. We're in for another atypical year. The warm spell we had last week made my crocuses go over after just 2 weeks. Normally, they flower from late Feb to late March. And I already have daffs about to flower which normally don't start till mid-April. @bluefox23
